This project will serve as a showcase for their learning, growth and contribution throughout the program. It gives interns a platform to demonstrate their skills, creativity and ability to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges. This final project presentation will not only maximize their learning experience, but also provide valuable feedback and recognition from senior management.
